Roslyn's decision to move toward a school uniform came as a result of many discussions with the school staff, and staff council prior to our discussion with the 2019-2020 Governing Board. School uniforms have been found to promote learning, nourish a sense of equality and promote community among students. Furthermore, they help to increase safety by making it easier for staff to identify the students at all times. In the long run, uniforms are more affordable as they eliminate the need to keep up with the latest fashion trends. We want to enforce the notion that students can still shine because of who they are and not how they dress.
